Semiparametric Fixed-Effects Estimator

François Libois and Vincenzo Verardi

No 1201, Working Papers from University of Namur, Department of Economics

Abstract: This paper describes the Stata implementation of Baltagi and Li's (2002) series estimator of partially linear panel data models with fixed effects. After a brief description of the estimator itself, we describe the new command xtsemipar. We then simulate data to show that this estimator performs better than a fixed effect estimator if the relationship between two variables is unknown or quite complex.
